Brace yourself, Oneplus 5T is here!
Much awaited and anticipated smartphone is finally here at Daraz. With lots of buzz and hype, Oneplus stormed into the scene of high specifications with the budget price. An incremental upgrade from the Oneplus 5. It’s not just an upgrade though; it’s also a replacement, as OnePlus ceased production and sales of the phone it launched just six months prior to the arrival of the OnePlus 5T.
So what do you get with OnePlus’ second generation ‘T’? The main talking points include the biggest screen the firm has ever put on a phone, a tweaked design, improved rear camera and face recognition. In short, there’s enough new stuff to justify its existence without it offering a radically new smartphone experience.
A processor for heavy gamers
Oneplus always embrace the processors made by Qualcomm. This Oneplus 5T packs a punch in its performance with the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset clocked with Octa-core (4×2.45 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo).
Gaming is like walking in the park. With least of the heat emission during the gameplay, Oneplus claims it to be a mini gaming device. Hardcore gamers can heavily rely on its performance. One can play the most intense games and perform the heaviest of the tasks without a lag or a glitch in the system.
Snappy Face recognition for security geeks
Another key feature and a first for OnePlus is the inclusion of face recognition tech as the brand attempts to ride the coattails of the iPhone X. Face recognition on the OnePlus 5T isn’t as advanced as Apple’s offering, but it’s still surprisingly good, using over 100 facial identifiers to check it’s you. It’s used only for unlocking the handset, and you’ll need to double-tap the screen or press the power key to utilize it. The good news is that it’s really easy to set up, with the phone requiring only a matter of seconds to lock in your look.
It’s incredibly fast, with almost no delay between you tapping the screen or button and your home screen appearing before you. OnePlus boasts the tech can identify you and unlock the handset in just 0.4 seconds.
